Subject[PATCH v4 0/2] virtio_console: fix replug of virtio console port
This patch series fixes the issue with unplug/replug of a port in virtio
console driver which fails with an error "Error allocating inbufs\n".

Patch 1 updates the next avail index for packed ring code.
Patch 2 makes use of 'virtqueue_detach_unused_buf' function to detach
the unused buffers during port hotunplug time.

Tested the packed ring code with the qemu virtio 1.1 device code posted
here [1]. Also, sent a patch to document the behavior in virtio spec as
suggested by Michael.

Changes from v3
- Swap patch 1 with patch 2 - [Michael]
- Added acked-by tag by Jason in patch 1
- Add reference to spec change
Changes from v2
- Better change log in patch2 - [Greg]
Changes from v1[2]
- Make virtio packed ring code compatible with split ring - [Michael]


Pankaj Gupta (2):
virtio: decrement avail idx with buffer detach for packed ring
virtio_console: free unused buffers with port delete
